Under the Dome, Season 2 Thread

Everybody's favorite, "It's crap, but it's summer, and there's nothing else on" show is coming back on June 30th! They're touting the first episode as being written by by Stephen King, himself.

In other news, Brian K. Vaughn is leaving, though he's already "arced" out season 2.

So, is this good news? Bad news? Indifferent news? We'll find out starting on June 30th!

I've never read the book but I really enjoyed the first season. I'm looking forward to seeing where they go with it.

Watched the first season through to the end, but don't think I'll bother with this due the ending.

2 major characters die early on and one is one of the "young" characters.

I only watched the first season because I thought it was a summer mini-series and didn't realize it was going to have a second season until like 2/3 of the way through the summer. Stuck it out until the end, but no interest in picking back up.

Same. Except I thought the whole thing was just really, really awful all around. I always give Stephen King stuff a shot, though, even though I'm not entirely sure why anymore.

Pass. I stuck with the first season, but was ultimately unsatisfied.

That's because as far as I remember, they originally advertised it as a mini-series. It was only after seeing the ratings that they decided to go the series route.

"It's crap but it's summer" really is the best way to describe it. It'll be fun to make fun of at least.

"It's crap, but fun crap, because it's summer," for me.

I thought the Simpsons Movie did it better.

Agreed.

I'm afraid this is going to be one of those shows that has a very interesting premise, but can't deliver a satisfying (or rational) conclusion.
